Great points, as usual, your observation that Bella is aware of "everything" going on around her is excellent. It was Bella's insight and awareness that alerted her to Edward's 'uniqueness." And her gift allowed her to keep up with her lovable telepathy. "Her warm heart" I might be wrong, but to me that is her most powerful draw for Edward. When you think of yourself as a monster, unless you have a big hearted partner, you have a big problem. And I agree the fact that she was "born as an old soul" was critical as well. Emmett is a lovable guy but he will never be as mature as his new "little sister."
You make a great point. Sent was important to both of them.
We remember how Bella's sent, almost overpowered Edward. But (as in the Bella Cafe, when Bella almost swooned as she was engulfed by Edward's sent, when he wrapped his coat around her) Edward's sent was a powerful aphrodisiac to Bella as well.
You make a very powerful point. (as usual) You said: (If Bella hadn't had Bella tell us her story from the first person) is the narrator would've she kept part of person from the reader (PP) Exactly right. We all tend to talk to our selves. As we read Bella's story iy is as if "We were her inner mind. And she was talking directly to us. Example: "No one knew where Edward always was ,,, IT WAS SICK!" It allows us to see the story from a totaly intimate perspective which I love.
I think that you hit the nail on the head. Edward and Charlie's love for Bella gave them something in common, that helped unite them. I don't think that Edward particularly cared for humans before he fell in love with Bella. AC to JH: Q , "It helps (to decrease you desire to kill and eat the children at Forks High School) if you think of them as humans." But as soon as Edward fell in love (I think everything changed for him.) As the Saga progresses Jacob also becomes less racist. "We are supposed to protect the humans from the monsters, but what should I do when Dr. Carlisle is more human than the humans!' (paraphrased)
You make a great point. Thank you for sharring with us, Doc
You say "He never heard anyone dream or even think about him in the way Bella said those words, like pleading to him to stay with her, he had no words to express how felt he completely change at that moment from wanting. "
WOW what a great point. You are so right. Edward thought of himself as a monster in many way. To hear this beautiful loving girl call out to him in her sleep BROKE HIS HEART. And when his heart broke he was able to love and live again. WHAT A GREAT POINT. YES, YES, YES THAT was the magical moment!! Thanks, Doc
"The Meadow explanation!"
What a great point. I think that, that was so true (Bella's wanting to be transformed NOT ONLY because of her love for Edward, but also BECAUSE SHE IS A CULLEN!! And I think that her explanation changes every thing. Bella CHOOSE Edward after the JK KISS, and SHE CHOOSE to be a Cullen, because she WAS a Cullen. She was this odd unusual girl who never fit in until she met this group of wonderful odd people who were like her. (I felt a little the same way until I went to college)
I think that you hit on one of the most powerful concepts in the Saga. Which we Twi- lovers always sensed to be true but which had never fully been explained until that special moment.
Charlie's reaction: Another wonderful point. We discussed Charlies (ata boy) reaction prior to the movie. And most everyone was disappointed with Charlies reaction. But in the movie he, was the Charlie we have grown to know and love. One who was startled to learn about Jacob's action.
Great points. Thanks. Your friend, Doc
I agree wit you about Edward's proposal. I think that Bella desperatly wanted Edward just as much as he did her. But she was ashamed about getting married so young. Thanks for sharing, Doc
